One of the worlds largest consumer packaged goods enterprises, multinational Unilever is in a class of their own. Major product groups include margarine and oils, soap and detergents, frozen foods, personal care products, and specialty chemicals. Their offerings include household names such as Ragu, Pondís, Breyers, and Lipton.
In 1996, Unilever had net profit of 2.5 billion dollars on sales of 52 billion dollars. With a workforce of 300,000 people, and expanding operations in the US, Canada, Europe, Asia and Latin America, they needed to manage their specification information.
Unilever had incomplete specification information and because of global production, used similar equipment but different processes at each facility. They needed to:
Quickly establish information for line extension products. Track and control variations between production plants. Create a technical repository for material information.
Integrate nutritional information with labeling.
Xspecģ provides a central repository of specification information for the various global facilities. Allows consolidation, standardization and maintenance of specification information.
Provides standardized view of information for all employees.
Access time is at least 100% better.
Accessed material information is current and accurate.
Accessed material information is complete.
